Crossing Cultures Digitally with CCTI

One of EAST CCTI (Cross-Cultural Team Internship) teams this year crossed borders digitally to work with ministry partners in Cambodia to conduct sessions of outreach and equipping to communities of young people. The sessions covered leadership education, life skills, bible study and music as topics of interest for young people.

CCTI ministry is typically cross-cultural as teams will be ministering to people groups of different languages and cultures. In addition, teamwork within CCTI teams is also cross-cultural because these teams are typically made up of students from different nations. On top of learning how best to communicate with each other in the team, each team must also plan and decide how best to minister in a cross-cultural setting. This is indeed a putting together of the heart, head and hands–the holistic approach of equipping at EAST.

The CCTI course combines both classroom instructional sessions as preparation and hands-on ministry on the field with ministry partners. This a core component of all our BACM, MA and MDiv programs which gives program students a very practical learning experience of working with multi-cultural teams in an intercultural ministry setting.

From year to year, EAST has been receiving students from different nations, and we are privileged to be part of their learning journeys for the fulfilment of the Great Commission.
